Young People of Norfolk had their say as first Ice House public consultation is carried out

On Tuesday, young people between the ages of 16 and 25 had their say on the future use of the town's historical building, The Ice House. During the day's open space session, ideas and needs of our future generation were heard and documented. Students from East Coast College, Access Creative College and East Norfolk Sixth Form were in attendance.

Harry Green aged 19 who attended Tuesday's session commented: "For me it was a serotonin boost and recharged my love for creating, socialising and networking. It felt so to be good to be to amongst other young people, and input towards project's creative goals in Norfolk. 

The next consultation takes place Saturday, March 4 at the Drill House, where anyone and everyone is invited to come along and have their say. These National Lottery Heritage Funded public consultations will help shape programmes, allow people to feel more connected, develop a stronger sense of belonging, and strengthen pride in their community.

Two creative sessions led by local artist Rose Feathers,are happening in local community centres in Southtown and Cobholm on March 14 and 15. The general public are invited to celebrate the heritage of the building, talk about the future use and capture stories through artistic activities, that will be great fun for all ages and families. 

A consultation session aimed at business owners, cultural professionals and heritage activists will take place Tuesday, March 14.
